48 Hour Book Challenge

Mother Reader is hosting her 6th Annual 48 Hour Book Challenge from 7:00 PM Friday June 3rd to 7:00 AM Monday June 6th.  The basic premise is to read for a 48 hour period with this time.  At first, I didn't think I could do this, because I knew I would be working most of Saturday and Sunday.  Then I realized I would be working on some research in the library and, really, I would just be reading.  The challenge is based on amount of time spent reading, not number of pages, so if I can count my research reading, as well as some novels, it seems to me that should work.

The books I have chosen for my own reading are
1- If I should die before I wake by Han Nolan
2- Homefront by Boris Gwaltney
3- Lady Lazarus by Michele Lang

Not as long a list as many participants, but that's OK.  Good luck to everyone this weekend.


  1. I hope you have a peaceful and productive time of it!

  2. Hope your research reading goes well. Professional research sounds like an interesting occupation.

    (I'm checking what everyone else is reading before starting myself in a couple of hours.)

  3. The Han Nolan book showed up on the summer reading list for our 9th graders. I'll be interested to hear what you think of it.

  4. Thanks for the encouragement and good luck with your own reading for this challange.
    Ms. Yingling, I will post a full review of the Han Nolan book, probably this week.

  5. Certainly professional reading counts, it's just harder! Give me an easy YA instead - especially in the last hours of the challenge.
